Weekend of Words - Saturday

8 Jun 2019 11:00 -16:00

Day Two of Weekend of Words includes Writing Workshops in the morning and a Poetry Panel event in the afternoon - all dotted around our beautiful building - if you're a writer, we can promise you won't be short of inspiration!

Writing Workshops 11.00am-1.00pm (doors open 10.30am),  choose from:


Short Stories - with Synaesthesia magazine's Resident Writer Tania Hershman

Poetry - with Laureate's Choice Mark Pajak

Creative nonfiction - with The Real Story editors Ebba Brooks and Adam Farrer


Poetry Panel 2.00-3.30pm (doors open 1.00pm):

Chaired by Women In Words director Clare Stuart, three poets share their work and explore watery themes:

Ella Duffy, Foyle Young Poet of the Year

Lenni Sanders, The Writing Squad graduate and Poacher pamphleteer

Clare Shaw, whose third collection Flood was published by Bloodaxe in 2018


TICKETS for all the Workshops are £5 and Poetry Panel admission is also £5 - AVAILABLE SOON via "Links" below

Please note: Entry to the building on Saturday is restricted to ticketholders, so Workshop and Poetry Panel participants will have exclusive access to the entire building for the day. 

Our Tea Room will open - because what would a Weekend of Words be without a cup of tea and a slice of cake - or a sandwich for that matter?!

Weekend of Words starts with a concert on Friday evening, and continues with a performance event on Saturday evening and more wordy goings-on on Sunday

Weekend of Words is supported using public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
